In this research, based on the drawings made by primary school students, "Examination of Primary School Students' Paintings in Terms of Color Use" constitutes the main purpose of the research. In this research, which was designed in accordance with qualitative research methods, observation and document analysis techniques were used. In the research, first, information about the concept of color was given, and then the paşntşngs of the students, who were examined and evaluated in the light of this information, were presented with examples. The participants of this research, in which the qualitative research method was chosen and used, consisted of a total of 45 students, 21 girls and 24 boys, studying in different classes in Sakarya. Considering the length of the article in the research, 22 paintings selected as examples from the participants were examined and evaluated. While examining the pictures, demographic characteristics such as gender and age were compared. While collecting the data in the research, students were asked to paint with pastel paints depending on the topic of "my colorful world". As a result of the research, the conclusion section was created depending on the data of the research. In this study, important results were obtained about the use of color in the drawings of the students. A significant difference was observed between the painting works of the primary school students participating in the research and their gender characteristics. Different uses were observed in terms of the use of color in the drawings of male and female students. It was observed that female students preferred primary and secondary colors more than male students in the use of colors. On the other hand, it has been observed that the primary colors are the most preferred colors by male students in terms of color use compared to female students. When the students' painting studies were examined according to age differences, differences were found in terms of color use. It has been observed that the use of color diversity has been observed as the age progresses, depending on the painting characteristics of the students between the ages of 7 and 10. With the increase in the perception of reality as the age increases, it has been determined that the real color of the figures and objects is tried to be used in the use of colors in the paintings of the students. As a result of these findings obtained in the research, suggestions were made about the use of color by the students.
